from Tennessee and the surrounding region, and it will both generate a wide range of new jobs as well

as meet current employment needs throughout the region.

Bachelor of Science (BS) in Fermentation Science

Middle Tennessee State University proposes to offer a 120 SCH BS to train industry professionals in the

production of fermented and distilled food and beverage products. Fermented foods are a staple

commodity in almost every society, but the understanding of the nutritional and long-term health value

of fermented foods is now being translated into increasing demand for custom and fermented foods.

Tennessee is home to a large and diverse of food processors. This program will sustain and advance the

industry in major manufacturers in Tennessee in dairy (yogurt) and other foods, and wineries and

breweries. In keeping with T.C.A.§ 57- 4-1 which regulates the tasting of alcoholic beverages in the

study of food and beverage fermentation, students must have completed 60 SCH in order to participate

in courses where tasting of alcoholic beverages is required.
